Attempting to run Asterisk as service.

Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)
root 1588 1 0 Jan17 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/sbin/safe_asterisk
root 1594 1588 0 Jan17 ? 00:01:45 /usr/sbin/asterisk -f -vvvg -c
/var/log/asterisk/messages shows (only “ERROR” i could find):
[Jan 17 10:15:18] ERROR pbx_spool.c: Unable to open directory /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing: Permission denied

When i start an asterisk session via asterisk -vvvvc, all works without issue… can make calls, and receive calls.
Everything I see here shows asterisk is running as root (yes, i know… it should be a different user)… however, i just want to get this running… then i can play with that. I was hoping someone may give me some insight as to why the service does not seem to want to run? Is there anything else I need to check, or add to this?
